1-Type A blood will have A antigen on the surIace oI its red blood cell (RBC).thereIore their
blood plasma will contain anti-B antibody .Whereas, blood type B will have B antigen on the
surIace oI their RBC .So ,their antibody in their blood plasma would be anti-A type oI antibody
.For blood type AB their surIace oI RBC will have both A and B antigens ,resulting in the
absence oI type anti-A and anti-B antibody in their blood plasma .While , blood type O have no
antigens on the surIace oI their RBC , thereIore the blood plasma contains both type anti-A and
anti-B antibodies.
2-In ABO blood typing the blood will be mixed with antisera (solutions that contain antibodies)
oI 2 types which is anti-A serum and anti-B serum .One drop oI blood is mixed with anti-A
serum ,which contains anti-A antibodies that will agglutinate RBCs that possess A antigens
.Another drop is mixed with anti-B serum ,which contains anti-B antibodies that will agglutinate
RBCs that possess B antigens .II the RBC agglutinate only when mixed with anti-A serum ,the
blood type is A .II the RBC agglutinate only when mixed with anti-B serum ,the blood is type B
.The blood type is AB iI both drops agglutinate .II neither drops oI blood agglutinate ,the blood
type is type O.
